St John’s Wort
You may have heard of chemicals in our brain called dopamine, serotonin and GABA. These happy chemicals get us up and glowing. When we are chronically tired, sad and depressed our happy chemicals (and others) become depleted. A lack of sunlight and winter or summer can be one of the factors resulting in feeling down.
Another great addition to our winter mood lift is the ancient herb St John’s Wort. This herb combines well with other herbs and supplements to lift mood and depression and reduce anxiety and irritability.
